    Very Good - A small scuff to the reverse of the tip of the Galalith panel. This is only visible upon very close inspection and is not apparent when the necklace is being worn. It does not detract from the appeal of the piece.

    A Short History...

    This piece does not bear a signature. All of Jakob Bengel jewellery was unsigned. However, his pieces possess distinctive hallmarks which make this necklace readily identifiable as Bengel. The chromium plating used in the necklace is typical of the company's 1930s pieces. The use of Galalith also means this is certainly by Jakob Bengel. The monochrome effect created by the enamel and chrome is additionally typical of a Bengel piece.

    The jewellery within the Gemma Redmond Vintage collection has survived to this day because it has been well cared for throughout its lifetime. It is important to continue to care for the jewellery that you buy from us to ensure its continued preservation. Here are some suggestions:

    - Be sure to store your jewellery within the boxes that we provide to ensure that it is protected. This is especially important when travelling with your pieces.

    - Try not to get perfume or hairspray on your items. These liquids can damage the materials that our jewellery is made from.

    - Try not to drop your jewellery or catch your jewellery against hard surfaces. If this happens over time, the findings and fixings can loosen and wear.

    - Try not to get your jewellery wet. Some costume jewellery manufacturers utilised water soluble glue in the making of their pieces. Getting your jewellery wet could cause rhinestones and other details to fall away over time.

    - If you wish to clean your jewellery, use a soft polishing cloth or a soft brush.
